Taking the Pajama Look Into Summer

Tuesday, July 18, 2017


What did we do before the pajama trend hit the runways? Who do we all need to thank for gracing the end of the 2010s with silk pants and tops that are socially acceptable to wear in public and easy to access in many stores, rather than just in the pajama department (pajama department????) of your standard Target. Just know that I have been in full support of this silk pajama as regular attire trend for about a year now and I don't say this about many trends, but I'd really like for it to stick around to ensure endless comfort at all hours of the day.




Look, dressing for this humid weather during the summer is killing me. Some days it's too cold to wear denim shorts and a t-shirt, but attempting to wear jeans that cling to my skin is also a huge no-no (more like a hell no). If I have to wear actual clothes and not my famous combination of the same two t-shirts, a pair of Adidas running shorts and $2 Old Navy flip-flops, I panic. I don't know how to dress anymore, especially in summer weather.

I've learned that any kind of loose fitting silk pants or culottes are the way to go, my friends. The fabric doesn't cling to your skin and make you sweat bullets (the bullets...okay, okay, there's no time for "Sign of the Times" in this blog post), but it also conceals more of your skin so the humidity doesn't make you feel absolutely disgusting. I'm not saying that the summer would be infinitely less miserable without humidity, but summer would be infinitely less miserable if THE HUMIDITY WOULD JUST NOT.



I got these pants a couple of months ago during my last ever day at Cleveland Consignment Shoppe. They're Rag & Bone and were originally like $400 something, so I was pretty stoked to get them for around 60 bucks. Normally I'd wear my trusty Rag & Bone white t-shirt, except it got a bunch of random stains on it that I could not identify, so I had to raid the pile of clean clothes on my brother's bed and wear a random white shirt. I don't even think this is a brand, I just needed it for the post.



We all know how much I'm loving my Adidas sneakers at the moment and no look of mine would be complete without a pair of sunglasses. I don't think I've worn these in an outfit post on my blog before, but I talked about them briefly a few months ago. They're my Dior Crystal-Embellished sunglasses that I scored at Saks Off Fifth. Whenever I wear them I feel like some sort of celebrity trying to hide my identity from the public. I don't know what it is about them, but I low-key love that feeling.
